i bought a 5150 cab
off my friend for 125 that wasnt working.
i cracked her open to see what was going on inside, and after wiring the speakers individually i see that the two sheffields were not working, but the two carvins were
heres a pic of one of the non working sheffields:
you can see it has the two lines popping out, that im assuming represent the wires?
i wired the carvins as a 2x12 and they sound fine together, but as i was playing yesterday i heard a 'pop' and looked in to see that the pop outs from the wires had appeared on the speakers.
they still worked however, and sounded good- but i am now afraid if i play at a volume i want to that they will break like the sheffields.
i also want to make sure before i order new speakers that its not something from the input that is causing this, and that its normal behavior.
thanks for your help and advice!
